They make their own and it was excellent! The lady behind the counter was super nice and gave us some good history on the town. I think there were about 15 or so flavors to choose from--all hard packed with homemade waffle cones, too boot!

As we were wandering around downtown Paducah, we came across this adorable old fashioned ice cream shop. According to the lady behind the counter, the owner has been in business for 15 years. There was a nice array of homemade flavors and uniquely named sundaes...More
